Probably discussed it over a couple of jello shots.


DENVER — Colorado health officials want to ban many edible forms of marijuana, including brownies, cookies and most candies.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has recommended that retail marijuana edibles be limited to lozenges and tinctures.

  1. Seriously, edibles are better for you than smoking the stuff!

    If a few idiot tourists consume a whole edible that is clearly labeled “CAUTION: EXTREMELY POTENT. DO NOT CONSUME ENTIRE EDIBLE”, how is that the the product’s fault?

  2. If you read the linked article it clearly stipulates that this is FOR THE CHILDRENZZZ.

  3. That article is hilarious

    “Ban it for the children”

    “We need to know what’s in our food”

    “And I do worry that people are going to make their own. They’re not going to know what they’re doing,”

    There’s always a small moment of freedom, then all the usual types have to rush in to quash and regulate things as much as possible.

  4. It’s not like there should be healthy alternative to smoking available.

    I just can’t imagine they will get much support for this, I’m pretty sure they can’t simply toss out edicts and expect it to be followed or even considered.

  5. For consumers, in the selection of home and apparel products, they expect the products they bought not only suit their lifestyle but also have the highest quality and safety Household and Apparel Products testing.
